Swanage, on the South Coast in Dorset, has much to offer, with its rolling green hills to one side of the Bay and Peveril Point to the other. But undoubtedly the main attraction for divers is Divers Down, Britains oldest dive school. Swanage has always been a popular dive site for all standards of diver and this year Divers Down will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. Nestling nicely on the pier to the South of the town, Divers Down has an ideal location, with the underwater world of wonder lying directly beneath it attracted by the confines of the wooden pier framework. A variety of other dives including many wrecks lie in deeper water outside the bay.
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors is the worlds largest and most popular diver training organisation, with local offices, instructors and retail dive centres more than 90 countries. PADI instructors are highly trained professionals who have qualified to conduct PADI courses by meeting the highest instructor training standards
